2018 Jeep Cherokee: The Perfect Compact Crossover

Let’s face it: If you’re in the market for a compact crossover SUV, off-road capability probably isn’t very high on your consideration list. You’re probably looking for something that offers quality driving dynamics, ample space, and lots of features for your daily drive to get from point A to point B.

While discounting off-road credentials can seem borderline blasphemous when covering a Jeep, it’s the reality of the current compact crossover market. Comfortable, spacious, and luxurious is what these types of shoppers want. The good news for 2018 Jeep Cherokee shoppers in Virginia is that you can have it all.

The Cherokee is most definitely a quality off-road vehicle (if the need or want ever arises), but it also provides a plush, comfortable ride for you and family or friends. For 2018, Jeep makes the Cherokee available in six trim levels: Overland, Trailhawk®, Limited, Latitude Plus, Latitude with Tech Connect Package, and Latitude.

Even the base model Latitude comes with features like 17-inch wheels, HID headlights, and roof rails. Go with one of the top trims like the Limited and you’ll get added features like dual-zone automatic temperature control, remote vehicle start, and more.

The point is that the higher you navigate up the trim ladder, the plusher and more luxurious the 2018 Jeep Cherokee becomes. While your first inclination might be that this kind of luxury might break your budget, nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, when you shop at our Jeep dealership near Alexandria, VA, we have purchase and lease specials available on our all Jeep models to help keep costs down. These could be factory financing promotions, low-monthly-payment lease programs, or even our own significant cost reductions.
